: former president of the united states, bill clinton, his speech hasn't been vetted by the obama team. all of the speeches except for clint eastwood. we want to make sure they stay on message. is it another loose cannon and look at what bill clinton said in the last three months, he's disagreed on major policies like extending the bush tax cuts and not having a millionaire's tax. the president wanted that. and he said romney had a stellar business career. i >> brian: he writes long hand on yellow paper. it is not like can i go on long hand. i am writing it out. they have an idea roughly of what he's going together. he's confident yet nervous about the content. >> steve: i read that on cbs and i read that the senior democrats are nervous. bill clinton and barack obama do not like each other and there is a blockbuster report out of the new yorker that has a quotation from 2008,oon arcticle by rina liza, bill said to ted kennedy when he was trying to get kennedy to support clinton. a few years ago he would be carrying our bags, referring to the president of the united states. it is out there
. second term as president of the united states of america. their sales pitch at their convention down in florida. >> boo! vote. i have to say, it was something despite all the challenges we face in this new century, we saw agenda out of last century. you might as well have watched it on black-and-white tv with some rabbit ears. it should have been on nick at nite. if you did not dvr it, let me give you a basic recap of what they said. good the economy is bad. it is all obama's fault, and governor romney has the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. they spent the most time on me. they were talking about me, and there was a lot of hard truths nobody bothered to tell you what romney had his chance to let you creation, he did not offer you a single new idea. policies that have been sticking it to the middle class four years, and after the convention governor romney came here to ohio, and he said he is going to be the coach that leads america to a winning season. playbook. on first down, he hikes taxes by family with kids in order to pay roughness to me. [applause] on second do
demonstrated a willingness to tackle long- term debt problem of the united states. i think he is prepared to do that and prepared to push through a plan if we make some amount of progress in this election, but i assume he will be a great second-term president. >> i agree with melody, i think the election will be very close, but i believe the president will be reelected, because i do not think this country wants to go back to the policies being advocated by the mitt romney/paul ryan ticket to a place where we're talking about reducing taxes on middle income people. a place where we're reducing regulation in a way that opens us up to the same abuses that got us into the financial crisis that led to the recession we are still climbing out of. i do not think women want to go back to a place where health care choices is something that is problematic. where our environment is at risk, because we do not have an energy policy that recognize the needs for clean, alternative sources of energy. i do not think the country wants to go back to that place. i do a thing when the president reelected, one of the
platform when it comes to the critical relationship between the united states and israel. what's going on? we'll have details. eeeee! yeah. i get all my friends' pics as soon as they take them. really? you just missed an awesome dance off between the dads. oh... wow!

[ "the odd couple" theme playing ] humans. even when we cross our "t"s and dot our "i"s, we still run into problems -- mainly other humans.
as the democratic candidate for president of the united states. we have a pretty feisty audience. >> we have so many paul ryan fans. paul ryan, paul ryan, paul ryan! yes! yes, can you feel the love. i bet we have a lot of crimson tide fans, too. roll tide! >> it's all right. we have with us contribute mike barnicle and senior political analyst mark halperin and msnbc political analyst john heilemann, whose cover story for this week's "new york" magazine is on joe biden's role in the campaign. >> what a great cover. >> as we said, later today democrats will kick off their national convention here in north carolina, a state with 15 electoral votes up for grabs this november. president obama won north carolina by a microscopic number of votes in 2008. but a new poll shows the president will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win here again. mitt romney currently leads the president 47% to 43%. one of the first orders of business will be to adopt the party platform. it echos president obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights. it s
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
, perhaps even the first latino president of the united states. he knows full well why he was picked to give this speech. in his words he said, i'm young, and i'm hispanic. >> hey, everybody. i'm julian castro. >> reporter: first thing you need to know, it's pronounced julian castro. the j is silent. not julian. but even if you get the spanish wrong, don't worry. san antonio's mayor has never mastered spanish either. >> i understand it better than i speak it. i grew up in my household with my mother and grandmother mostly speaking english. i understand it, but speaking it back is always the challenge. >> reporter: julian castro's grandmother immigrated from mexico and worked in the chicano movement in san antonio. from the humble beginnings, julian and his twin brother went on to stanford university and harvard law school. now he is a rising star in the democratic party, tapped to give the keynote speech at the democratic convention, the same speech an unknown barack obama gave at the convention in 2004. >> you get talked about as someone who could be the first hispanic governor of texas. so
's exotic, grew up outside of the united states and yes, by the way, he is black. but this is -- this goes beyond that, because it really is -- i just think there's an edge to this one that we haven't seen. >> dana, you were just saying, that given all the attacks during the convention, the republican convention next week, it's not been of any great benefit to mitt romney. today we learn that the romney and ryan campaign are running robo calls and guess what's in the robo call, the president wants to raid medicare for $716 million and he's going to tax wheelchairs and pacemakers. i mean, if it failed during their convention, why do they keep doing this? >> and i expect next they'll come back again with that jamesville gm plant which has been discredited and that whole line about the simpson-bowles that paul ryan trotted out last week. so, you know, that doesn't seem to be working. you know, when you take something like the jamesville case that's flat wrong, that's one thing. gene does make an important case that welfare argument is more pernicious because it seems designed to divide people
of the united states of america. last week the other party gave their sales pitch at their convention down in florida. >> boo! >> do not boo. vote. [applause] i have to say, it was something to see. despite all the challenges we face in this new century, we saw three straight days with an agenda out of last century. it was a rerun. you might as well have watched it on black-and-white tv with some rabbit ears. it should have been on nick at nite. if you did not dvr it, let me give you a basic recap of what they said. good the economy is bad. fault, andobama's hal governor romney has the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. that is the basic summary. they spent the most time on me. they were talking about me, and there was a lot of hard truths and choices they said, but nobody bothered to tell you what they were, and when governor romney had his chance to let you in on the secret sauce of job creation, he did not offer you a single new idea. it was a retread of the same policies that have been sticking it to the middle class four years, and after the convention governor romney ca
. >> absolutely. notwithstanding what any poll may say, the president of the united states is making this address thursday night we feel very confident that the stadium will be full. and so it's really more about the weather than it is about whether you're going to fill a stadium or not. he is the president, making one of the most important speeches given where we are right now at this time. no doubt that the stadium will be full. certainly you don't want people rained on. >> can i ask about the enthusiasm number. you're my numbers guy. so you're prepared for the whole morning. i'll throw it your way. >> what does that really mean? if you look at the enthusiasm numbers the number foreenthusiasm for mitt romney i think is 51% when they asked republicans and when i do anecdotal questioning, everybody seems to be like -- on this election overall. is it a measure of incumbent that people are less enthusiastic or overall? >> i think it's right that it is a measure of overall. this is not a history-making election in the way that 2008 was history-making election. you knew that there was going to be a n
tax rate. the united states have highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world making us less competitive. we need to bring down the corporate tax rate to attract investors and different corporations as well. we have to simplify the corporate tax code. a lot of extra provisions that can be reduced to simplify and make corporate taxes and individual taxes easier. reducing the rate and simplifying the deductions is the key winning formula. dennis: as soon as we hear reduce the rate that will make some americans feel they are favoring corporations. do you guys want overall corporate tax revenue to go up to help balance the budget? >> corporations have a role to play in the economy and they should play commensurate with their earnings like everybody should pay in terms of how we are structured. in terms of lowering the corporate tax rate increases jobs and that helps americans. by lowering the corporate tax rate you help the economy and individual americans and that is the key to getting the economy started again. dennis: overall should there be an alternative minimum tax so every
to the united states treasury, eclipsed $16 trillion debt level collectively, what we owe as a nation, now, going over $16 trillion. now, republicans are, they were itching for it last week, but they are probably just as happy to see it as the democrats have it happen here. if you are just tuning in, $16 trillion, a new milestone, it is a huge sum as we have been reminded by many times like spending $900,000 every hour since jesus christ was born and you would still not come up to $16 trillion. what do do you to get it under control? >>guest: the mitt romney plan they have outlined, that would make that substantially worse at $3 trillion to $5 trillion of tax cuts that you try to pay for in addition to whatever deficit reduction you have. >>neil: you are not part of the ronald reagan school this activity brings revenue to the government. >>guest: tax cuts do not pay for themselves. we have decades of evidence. >>neil: they do spur growth? >>guest: depending which rates they are, they can spur some growth but they do not in any way create a laffer curve that generates its revenue. >>neil: i
cover more liberal areas. berkeley and oakland and all that, those are not racist parts of the united states. people live there because they like diversity. this republican ad campaign about welfare and giving up the work requirement to me is all of the old language and lingo? >> these are code words. when you talk about the food stamp president and welfare and the way they talk about welfare. i was on public assistance. we have many young women who need that bridge over troubled waters until they can find a good paying job to take care of their families. there's so many people because of the economy and because of the previous administration's economic policies who need assistance yet. they need food stamps. but the way the republicans are preventing this, of course it's cold. and of course they're trying to play into the worst fears of the american people. it's not going to work. people know better than that. i think people will rise to the occasion. they're going to get out and vote for president obama. they're not going to listen to the right wing rhetoric of this. >> i remember t
of cases that have interpreted the constitution of the united states around equal rights and so when we talk about the importance of the presidency it's certainly about the economic issues of that nature. but this could have impacts for hundreds of years. >> i do have to ask this question. there's going to be 28 women paraded on the stage tonight to talk about the power of the republican party. >> we only have 17% of women in congress. we only have 17 women senators, we only have six governors who are women we still have a very long way to go and when the house of representatives is having a hearing about access to birth control and the first panel is devoid of a woman, women women's voices aren't being heard. >> ifill: thank you both, one of those women is on the floor right now, that's congresswoman nidia valasquez of new york. >> i am proud to speak to you as a hispanic american. as a proud latina and a puerto rican. (cheers and applause) from being the first in my family to attend college to becoming the first latina to chair a full congressional committee in congress, my story has
